White shirt Wednesday: Chameleon cityscaping

white shirt casual french inspired style

Torn between capital cities, urban backdrops and signature ensembles, the crimson mile clan continue their endless fashion campaign to paint the town fabulous with a selection of carefree ensembles that induce the urge to splurge!

Never one to wave the flag too high for a particular cityscape, the style set has become famous for their incognito approach to street style and citizen of the world status.

Slipping skilfully into any busy environment, Instagrammers and on-runway headliners have made downtempo dressing its own unique art form. Ideal for those off-duty days where the paparazzi is kept at bay and glamazons are free to explore the city at will, showstoppers are replaced with lazy-luxury and chameleon-like qualities that blend instantly into their city of choice.

But how one may ask?

An armoury of just-in-case ensembles? An off-grid outfit tracker? Eyes in the sky? Who knows. All we do know is how to make this unique polyamorous approach to kerbside cool works for whichever city you call home.

Taking a break from the onslaught of fast-track fashion fads and high shine allure, this top model favourite is the perfect mid-season segue for those off-catwalk escapes into the big bad city.

A master class in summer to autumn ratios, this subtle pairing of opposites is perfect for those stiletto-free days in between fashion week madness.

A versatile ensemble with designer overtones, laid back doesn’t have to mean luxury-free. Investing in quality classics, this pure wool striped jumper is a cross-continental style staple; worn XXL with an air of irreverence, this big basic goes further when paired with our endlessly stylish Bettie silk shirt.

A preppy chic suitcase essential with that added no-crease factor, leave the collar unbuttoned and style with a paisley bandana around the neck for hints to your current fashion tribe. Paired with love-worn, low-slung dirty denim, these distressed denim shorts are ideal for showing off that tropical tan before its time to cover up. Perfect for the inconsistencies of life on the road, living out of a suitcase never looked so good.

Worn as low as you can go to accentuate a long leg, this seemingly simple ensemble is ideal for those laid-back weekends when fun trumps fashion and timeless style is the aim of the game.

Accessorised with a compact all-leather holdall and slip on jute wrap sandals, these functional and fashionable designs are ideal for stashing all you need for a day on the town and keeping your feet feeling free from sunrise to sunset, too. Topped off with a pair of shady frames, this carefree look is the perfect antidote to structured silhouettes and ketchup-shy showstoppers – so go on, give into the city and gorge on guilty pleasures, tourist traps and take a bite out of the city at large in this forgiving yet endlessly stylish ensemble.
